Food Diary

OK friends, here is the horrible food diary I have kept this week inspired by Lindsay of Fooditude. It kept me in check for the most part, but I probably could have picked an easier week to try to stay “good”! I don’t suggest trying to stay away from freshly baked chocolate chip cookies when you are about to start your period, but Billy helped by cleaning out my stash (the first one!), and I gave a good portion of the batch away. It was pretty nerve-wracking to think, ‘oh man, people are going to know what I actually eat in a week, and see my humongous sweet tooth for the terror it really is”, but here it is anyway…

My daily calorie allowance should be 1317 to lose weight. I ┬áran 3 miles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so my intake can be up to 400 calories higher than days I don’t run, but I still like to keep it close to my normal allowance. I think I do better the beginning of the week, whereas the closer to the weekend I get, the worse I eat!
